9th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2015)

September 16-20, 2015, Vienna, Austria

Demo submission deadline: April 30th, 2015


The demo session provides an exciting way for researchers and developers 
to present new recommender ideas, show off their work, and get valuable 
feedback from the recommender systems community.

We invite demonstrations of developments in all aspects of recommender 
systems, including (but not limited to):

- Interaction techniques (preference elicitation interfaces, 
recommendation presentation, explanations, and more)
- Tools for development and analysis of recommender systems (design 
tools, evaluation systems, analytics tools)
- Innovative applications of recommender systems
- Recommender experiments (showing something new to RecSys attendees 
could be a valuable source of data on user interaction with your 
recommender concept)

RecSys demos provide innovators and researchers a unique opportunity to 
get feedback from the recommender systems community on their ideas. 
RecSys has an excellent history of being well-attended by industry 
representatives — past conferences have had attendees and presenters 
from Ebay, Pandora, Twitter, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, 
Amazon, IBM, etc. The blend of industry and academic attention provides 
an excellent environment to demonstrate and discuss your latest 
invention or idea. Taking advantage of this environment, the demo track 
is particularly useful for several groups:

- Researchers wanting to allow attendees to interact with their work, 
not just see it presented, and possibly gather usage data for feedback
- Deployed recommender systems available to interact with
- Early stage start-ups looking to showcase their ideas and gain 
feedback and exposure


Demos should be submitted in PDF format through the EasyChair system 
( and must 

1. A two-page demo summary that includes a link to a narrated screen 
capture of your system in action (ideally a video). This two-page 
summary of accepted demo will be included in the conference proceedings. 
For a formatting template, please see (tighter 
alternate style).
2. A one-page description of the demonstrated system and the required 
setup. If the system will feature an installable component (e.g., mobile 
app) or web site for users to use throughout or after the conference, 
please mention this. The description should also provide information 
about the presenter(s), including their relationship to the project.

Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted demo is required to 
attend the conference.
